Dr. Steven Gabel graduated from Loyola University in 1995 and specialized in various fields: hair restoration, facial plastic, reconstructive surgery, and otolaryngology. He is the founder and medical director of the Gabel Hair Restoration Center located near Portland in Oregon. He started performing hair transplants in 2001 and in 2004 decided to focus solely on the FUE technique when it was still in its early stages. He only performs one transplant per day: his focus is on the quality and not the quantity. Consultations at his clinic are conducted by him personally : he believes that one of the key to the success of the treatment is the patient-doctor relationship.
